About a month or two before the total solar eclipse in August 2021, Senior Pastor Catherine Nance thought it would be a good idea if we had a watching party here at the church. This gathering would include "Sundrop" soda and "Moon Pies" and eclipse watching glasses. At the beginning we planned for 250 people to show up thinking to ourselves that was way more people than would come to a church to watch this phenomenon. In the end, we had more than 500 people, representing more than a dozen states and three countries scattered across the church grounds to experience this wonderful gift from God.
One of our members, Denise Ruckhart caught a little of the crowd's
reactions at the moment of totality.
